How to migrate iTunes m4v to windows RT

Windows RT is such a lovely novelty, it is able to pull off like media consumption champ while remains the ability to get you productive. The problem is, Windows RT is technically a window in terms of software ecosystem, the adoption of ARM chip make the old apps like iTunes or photoshop unavailable on the platform, i am not sure if apple will be willing to make iTunes for windows RT considering the fact that this thing is actively being saluted as the “iPad killer”. So, currently, may as well be in the future, your iTunes files like m4v and m4b will not be played on a windows RT computer because the DRM embedded in the file that restrict the file’s usage on only five computers and apple devices. Windows RT doesn’t falls into neither category.

So, what should we do? I say, if you are really intrigued by the first productive tablet, just go for it. If the thing that hold you from pulling the trigger is the iTunes DRM thing, chill my friend, it can be solved.
